***Can we first define Sola Scriptura as that the Scripture, by itself contains all that a person needs to know in order to be saved and to live a life of good works.***
Of course not.
Sola Scripture is the philosophy that all instruction, theology and religious information comes directly from the words of the Bible. Anything not found expressly in the Bible is not to be considered. That is the idiocy of sola scriptura.
“Anything not found expressly in the Bible is not to be considered. “
Not true. Other information may be considered, but that information is never the final authority about any doctrine, Scripture is.
“That is the idiocy of sola scriptura.”
Careful who or what you call “idiot”...
“And Jesus answered him, saying, It is written, That man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word of God.”
